Gamefly thus far.

When I bought my PS3 at Christmas, a thought came to me and it was this; now that I have a PS3, a Xbox 360 and of course my PC, my game purchases are going to get quite expensive. So I thought 'hey, why not give Gamefly another try and just rent games for the PS3 and 360 and save me a bit of money'. And of I approved of the idea.

So far I have been sent three games from Gamefly; Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, Lord of the Rings Conquest and now Resistance 2. Uncharted was the first game on my list, but Conquest was not second and I did not want Resistance 2 before I had a chance to play the first one. My guess is that Darksiders and Bayonetta, numbers two and three on my list, are not available and so I am getting a game that has the most availability on my list. So why not send Assassin's Creed 2, or the first Resistance, or even Prototype which were all higher on the list?

Uncharted is a good game, but a frustrating one for me. My first thought after completing the game was how come everyone loves this game so much. I guess I had a preconceived idea of what the game might be like and it was just not that. Good game, but I do hope the second one wow's me like it's suppose to.

Lord of the Rings Conquest; if a developer crapped on a disc and then stuck it in a PS3, this is what you would get. The game looks awful, the controls are terrible and it plays like garbage.

That leads us to Resistance 2. And after a couple of hours I can honestly say that it stinks so far. The action is not bad, the aiming controls a bit on the loose side, but the game looks bad so far and it just seems kind of boring. I think I will keep it over the weekend and see if it gets better for me.

Honestly if it wasn't for Batman Arkham Asylum, I would be thinking that my investment in a PS3 was a bad one so far. There are a slew of good games being released starting next Tuesday with Mass Effect 2 so my time management skills are going to be put to the test.

Wow. You're not having the best of luck so far. Not having a PS3, I can't make any suggestions. However the one PS3 game I would want to try if I owned one would be Demon's Souls.

Never subscribed to Gamefly either. Are you decided if it's a good investment yet?

I agree with you - Resistance 2 is a stinker & I dont owner it anymore.

Uncharted 2 was the title that drew me back into playing on my PS3.

@Anjin
After a little more thought, I do think it has been a good investment so far. Demon's Souls is on my que, but I have a feeling that is a game I may need to purchase.

@DM
I am looking forward to playing Uncharted 2 hopefully soon. Glad I am not the only one who thought Resistance 2 is bad.

I am waiting for SOE to actually release an MMO for the PS3. The moment that happens, I'll run out and get one.

I want to play a real MMO from my couch (not FFXI!), and Microsoft obviously has no interest in any true MMOs being released for the 360. They even squashed a version of Champions Online that was ready to go for the 360.
